I have had many Realtor friends and business associates in the past, and I do have them now. In fact, many times we were able to exchange leads and help each other in the closing of a deal.
I have four different types of customers:
The ones who own property in this area and are either planning on adding on / enlarging their home for their changed lifestyle
The customers who have had vacant property for years and have finally decided to build on it o that they can make the move and get away from their hectic city lives.
The ones who are looking for vacant land so that they can build for above reasons.
The ones who are buying a home, but would like to make some changes - to make it fit their family, personality and needs.
The latter two normally involve Realtors. Having a customer who is interested in either vacant land or in an excisting home are the customers all Realtors deal with day in and day out. I am sure you all had the buyers who simply cannot make up their minds, because they simply cannot envision their home on a vacant land or who LOVE the house, but wish it was slightly larger, had more storage or just not 'open' enough. The price is right, the location is perfect - they are ready to sign, BUT ....
On many occasion I work hand in hand with Realtors, and help 'nudge' those undecided customers by giving them a visual of what the possibilities are, an approximate cost of what it would cost them to have that dream house. I do this free of charge simply to help an associate as well as to lock in a possible client for myself in the future.
The system works the other way also - I have had customer before whom I had to advise that it will be more economically feasible to sell their existing property and look for something that is more in line with what they are trying to achieve.
So you see - Realtors and Designer can benefit from each other's services. I for one believe in networking - worked for me well in the past!
